For

  • Most cost under $2 per day to operate
  • App-compatible

Against

  • There isn't a very large variety of swim spa sizes

When it comes to the best swim spas, it's important that they're cheap to run. There are seven base swim spa models to customize at Arctic Spas: Hudson, Kingfisher, Wolverine, Ocean, Athabascan and Okanagan. Each has its own unique qualities and options you can adapt to fit your lifestyle whether you want to work out or just have fun with the kids. In most cases, these swim spas cost less an $2.00 a day to operate.

Arctic Spas review: Models

Arctic Spas has a host of models to pick from. The Athabascan Swim Spa is an all-weather pool with quite a bit of swimming area in its 1,347 gallons of water. It comes standard with a heat transfer pure fiberglass shell and an insulation system to trap warmth even during colder months. 

The Kingfisher is also an all-weather pool and has lights swimmers can use to make sure they're swimming straight against the pool's current. It also has a beautiful Western Red Cedar cabinet the company builds using Western Canadian cedar. 

The Ocean has more swim spa features than the company's all-weather pools. You can even select your own jet configuration and get 30, 45 or a whopping 61 jets in this swim spa.

You can use a smartphone app to run your swim spa from afar, opt for a speaker system and even a fancy cover to protect your investment. There are a lot of informational videos throughout the website as well to make your decision a little easier. The range of sizes is the smallest of the websites we evaluated with spas as small as 1,347 and only as large as 1,453, but this range does seem to be the most common sizes of swim spas on the market. There also isn’t any workout equipment for sale, but this website’s wide range of customizable swim spas make it worth a look.

Arctic Spas review: Pricing

This company was founded in 1994. The sales staff will help you customize your swim spa so it’s as extravagant or as affordable as you want. You can even use a smartphone app to control your spa, though if you want fewer options the website says they have spas available for as little as $4,000. We requested a price quote on a weekday and got a call back in 1 hour,, which was by far the best response time of the websites we tested.

Should you buy a swim spa from Arctic Spas?

If customer service and low running costs are important to you, we think Arctic Spas is a great pick. It may not have the biggest range of models available but with custom options readily available you can create the ideal spa for you and your needs and budget.
